The arrests happened shortly after the shareholders failed to pass two resolutions that would have changed Monsanto’s policies on its Genetically Modified Organism products. Protesters say people should be concerned they are buying genetically modified food that the organizers say is not safe for human consumption. "Basically GMOs are a big experiment on the American population. And we think many people are suffering food-related illnesses and they can’t track it back to the source because the food is not labeled," said Adam Eidinger with Occupy Monsanto. "If GMOs are safe as Monsanto claims, then putting a label on them will only confirm how safe they are."
